Silver Line Regional Rail
Archer Western Herzog (AWH), a joint venture between Archer Western Construction and Herzog Contracting Corp., is DART's design-builder for the project. AWH began field construction in November 2019, removing old rail components and relocating some utilities.
DART, aided by AWH, has deployed an extensive community engagement effort as part of the design-build process. Since March 2019, DART has invited the community to update meetings that cover design progress, project schedule, vehicles, hike-and-bike trails and construction.
Additionally, DART meets regularly with city staff, elected officials and adjacent property owners. Each Silver Line station has a Station Art & Design committee that gives input on themes and unique design elements.
The agency selected railcar manufacturer Stadler U.S. to build up to eight FLIRTs (Fast Light Intercity and Regional Train) and design an equipment maintenance facility. The Stadler FLIRT is a self-propelled diesel multiple unit (DMU) rail vehicle that meets Tier 4 EPA emissions standards and Federal Railroad Administration standards.
